The Farmyard & Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Mini Farmyard Objective: To identify and describe animals commonly found in the farmyard and also to investigate and report the use of animals in our daily lives.

Biological Science
Our farm animals have basic needs, which include food & water. From piglets to ducks, our friendly Mini Farmyard animals showcase a variety of external features and the different stages of growth, how they change and have offspring similar to themselves.
Natural & Development of Science
Children can explore and observe the animals using their senses.
Physical Science
The way an animal moves does depend on a variety of factors, including their size and shape.
Use & Influence Of Science
People use science in their everyday lives, which includes caring for their environment and living things.

We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. We ask thought provoking questions and have plenty of activity sheets available from our website you are welcome to download & print out prior to our visit.
